amendment right to due process, nor the u.s. law against killing americans abroad, nor the u.s. law banning assassinations, nor just the law against murder, nor the laws of war broadly legally constrain the president from ordering the type of assault that killed american citizen and prominent al qaeda figure on war al awlaki in yemen in 2011. al awlaki's son was also killed a couple of weeks after his father was killed. between those two killing, charlie savage at "the new york times" reported on the existence of a legal memo that the government was relying on to claim that the attack was legal. that memo is what is being disclosed to select members of congress tonight. it follows by two days the scoop by nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff, who this week on this show disclosed a white paper that was based on the reasoning of that secret memo. tonight's disclosure follows increasingly intense questioning of the administration on this matter by senate democrats, particularly by senator ron wyden of oregon, who today told reporters that while he understood that operations nee

, that the u.s. patent office issued a patent. i will not give you a pop quiz. it was labeled john deere plow. the implement sketched out could have easily been labeled one of the most important inventions in history. they called it the plow that broke the plains, and it did. by replacing cast iron with smooth innovation, it opened up swaths of land for cultivation. it made it possible for my hometown to exist. beforehand, tilling an acre took a full 24 hours. afterward, as little as five. every toil ended another assumption of what the land could produce. it is not just the start of agricultural success, but of national success. this kind of game changing innovation has enabled us to leap ahead and increase harvest and feed the whole world. sometimes these innovations come from the most advanced science. other times they are simple steps and ideas that come from looking at and listening closely to the problem. all of them can break down barriers to food security. it can allow us to allow new paths of progress. we need those new pathways forward. take a look at a few recent headlines.

that is relate to the pentagon and to the u.s. military that will just be held in abians -- >> what do you think the british military and the french think when leon panetta turns up? >> well, they like leon panetta but what they will think is what they have been thinking for the last 2 1/2 years, is that the republican party in the united states has gone off the rails and is obstructing the normal order of business of the world's only super power, and this is the first time, martin, in the history of the defense department going back to the 1940s that there's been a filibuster of a nominee to head that department and i would wager that if it went to its predecessor that the department of war going all the way back in american history, this has never been done. these people are out of control in their obstructionism and the only thing to do is fight them all the way, and there are new tools that the president unveiled in his state of the union to do that with. the president should go to enlisted personnel, retired enlisted personnel all over the united states and say, chuck hagel is the first of
state legislature scott brown won that u.s. senate seat and found himself going to washington. now scott brown did not stay there long. he ended up serving only a partial term in ted kennedy's seat. when he had to defend that seat in this last election in november, he lost the seat as an incumbent by eight points. scott brown and herman cain were both announced this week as the latest contributors on the fox news channel. so that is what scott brown will be doing now with herman cain instead of legislating. while elizabeth warren has that seat now in washington. elizabeth warren made her debut this week at the banking committee that wall street was so eager to keep her from joining. her first round of questioning, she was questioning some bank regulators, demanding to know why no wall street banks ever end up on trial when they break the law. that round of questioning has already become as much as a viral sensation as might be possible for a round of banking committee questioning. spontaneously, i should note in the moment when she was asking those questions of the bank regulators about

of them male already oppose moving this legislation anywhere in the u.s. senate. >> that's absolutely right john. in fact, the good news is that all of the republican women senators, except one, deb fisher, and all of the democrat democratic senators have signed on as cosponsors. i will say this, eric cantor we moved him enough to where he's beginning to change his rhetoric rhetoric. that's clearly not enough. he needs to change his policies. we know what the republican leadership is doing right now is they're doing what amounts to a head fake. they want to pursue their extremist policies but dress up the policies in nicer language, less extremist language. women are not fooled. and when it comes to the violence against women act men are with us. the voters will not be fooled. it will be interesting to see what happens in the next election cycle. >> john: sarah palin saw that, and it involved lipstick and pork, i believe. we'll be watching this legislation closely. thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> john: pat robertson has weighed in on gays in the boy scouts and his opinion i
's nominee to be u.s. representative to the united nations. now some presidents include that position in their cabinet. some do not. but astpraoeud that singular insurance -- aside from that sing latin incident which i pointous was the democrats saying they're going to filibuster a nominee by the president and deny him a seat, so far as i've been able to tell there's not been ever an instant in the history of the senate where republicans have used a filibuster to deny a cabinet member an up-or-down vote when nominated by a president. that only leaves appellate judge nominations, circuit judge nominees. up until 2003, so far as i've been able to find, the rule of the senate was that the president's nominees to be on the federal courts of appeal always received an up-or-down vote. they were decided by a vote of 51. then our friends on the democratic side when president bush became president decided they didn't like that, and they changed the practice. they began to filibuster president bush's judges for up or down -- to deny them their seats. i had just arrived in the senate in 2003, mr

opinion on chuck hagel's long-awaited confirmation saying the u.s. has the secretary that our troops deserve. it was close but lawmakers did confirm hagel 58 to 41. he is scheduled to be sworn in today. that means hagel now heads into office with a list of challenges ahead. first up, the sequester hits friday friday. without a deal, the defense department is facing about $46,000,000,000 in cuts before the end of september. that means hundreds of thousands of furloughed civilians and cuts that will affect military equipment and ness. hagel will also need to deal with getting the troops out of afghanistan and compromising with republicans. that last part won't come easy. texas senator john cornyn has made it clear hagel is taking office with the least amount of support as any defense secretary in modern history. we will be right back. 9am eastern. >> i'm a slutty bob hope. >> you are. >> the troops love me.

in iraq but was hailed as perhaps the deadliest sniper in u.s. military history, was shot and killed on saturday by a troubled fellow soldier, a man he was trying to help. nbc news chief pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski joins us with the latest on this. what are police and witnesses saying happened here and where things went so wrong for chris kyle? >> well, police in texas have one suspect in custody. eddie ray routh, a marine corps reservist, 25 years old, who apparently, according to reports, was suffering from ptsd. now, chris kyle and other veterans there in texas would often try to independently help those with ptsd by taking them to shooting ranges to sort of blow off steam. now, according to officials in texas, this was the first time that kyle and his friend had met eddie ray routh at this shooting range about 50 miles outside ft. worth on saturday, when suddenly and allegedly, routh opened fire with a hand gun at point-blank range allegedly again killing both kyle and the other former service member. now, routh is in jail, he's expected to be charged with two counts
the surge worked, what it did was extract the united states from a war that senator hagel believes the u.s. never should have been in, so he didn't sort of have that kind of strong push back. i think that truck made a very good point about what kind of sway he is going to have in congress. you know, the calculation of having a republican defense secretary as it was when bob gates remained as defense secretary for the first two years of the obama administration was to have someone there with the credibility to say, you know, this old cold war system can die. we don't need it. we can cut the budget here and put the money in cyber or put the money in some other activity that the united states considers relevant pursuing terrorists. right now it's not clear that he has enough juice with his own party that any of those arguments would necessarily work. i think that the white house has to be wondering did they buy the kind of authority from him and the kind of bipart sfwlan approach that they had hoped for? >> david, thank you very much. chuck, before i let you go, we've about the to talk about

: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't have a problem when somebody leaves their citizenship at the door and they're overseas and they have taken up arms against the united states of america. and they clearly are trying to hurt americans not only here but abroad, to use drones. i've been public on that already. the question comes what about here in

soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations committee. he is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. and the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster, just about unprecedented. we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before. there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. the republican minority in the senate seemed to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. the rule is that you're supposed to have a majority of the hundred senators vote on most bills. the filibuster historically has been used slektively for a handful of issues to extend debate. but we don't have a 60-vote rule. and, yet, that's become kmonl practice. this is just the latest example. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >>
